"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere. Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.

By 2021, cyber attacks are expected to cause $6 trillion in damages worldwide. To combat, spending is predicted to hit $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. Attackers benefit from an infinite amount of time and tactics at their disposal, as they work to get around the typical static network and endpoint defenses organizations put in place. Deception can complement endpoint and network defenses, adding dynamic security mechanisms that can be customized for every environment to take the attacker’s advantage away. While endpoint and network security protects you from being compromised, deception mitigates the effects of a compromise by detecting it early and identifying the attacker intent which helps coordinate a faster and better response. Read this white paper to find out more.

Being aware of the risks and costs associated with DDoS attacks, most enterprises protect their websites and network infrastructure with some sort of mitigation solution. However, as the threat landscape continues to evolve, it’s getting harder to gauge your organization’s DDoS readiness and identify the soft spots in your defenses. The calculator measures your DDoS resiliency score based on a short questionnaire about your network infrastructure, security products and procedures. The results are provided in a detailed report that includes: Your DRS score, its meaning and implications Technical evaluation of a virtual penetration test Comparative analysis of your DRS within your business vertical Suggestions for improving your security posture

Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success. This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.

Networking communication protocols make it possible for the Internet to work. Unfortunately, criminals can use those trusted systems to obfuscate malicious data and penetrate your network defenses undetected. An advanced evasion technique (AET) is a method of delivering an exploit or malicious content into a vulnerable target so that the traffic looks normal and security devices will pass it through. By combining attacks using several protocol layers, these advanced evasions bypass most existing security solutions. Forcepoint NGFW (Next-Generation Firewall) applies sophisticated analysis techniques specifically to detect this type of attack. Download this whitepaper to find out more.

Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.

Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.

A paradigm shift is underway in the cybersecurity industry. Cybersecurity professionals are moving from a focus on attacker prevention to attacker detection. Preventing the “bad guys” from getting in is still important, but cyber adversaries are increasingly able to bypass even the most sophisticated network defenses. Once inside, it is more important than ever to find these attackers fast, before their activities get buried in the daily volume and pulse of network communications. This is where security analytics holds promise. Security analytics provides the necessary and timely visibility into normal and abnormal network behavior. This visibility enables devices and entities acting suspiciously to be quickly identified and investigated.
